GROW YOUR SKILLS WITH THE APPNZ



Talent Training Programme

The APPNZ Talent Training Programme runs over 12 months. Each month there are recorded briefings that you can watch or listen to either individually or as a team, and then complete the practical exercises to test your knowledge or skills. These exercises can be either completed online, or if you are a Manager running the programme with your team, these can be printed off and completed as a team.


You can join the programme at any time during the year and work through every module. Alternatively you can just complete the modules of your choosing to fill in any areas where you want to update or grow your knowledge.


APPNZ Members receive 8 modules per annum as part of your membership. You can also purchase modules which have already run, to complete in your own time. These are $45 + GST per module.
